Healthy Memorial Day Treats



Memorial Day is coming up, which means it’s that time again to fire up the grill and dig into the delicious food and sweet treats, but if you’re trying to eat a little healthier I’ve done my research and found some of my favorite great alternatives to satisfy my sweet tooth cravings while still eating healthy.

Fruit can be a great alternative to fix your sweet tooth craving and when trying to live a healthier lifestyle we all know fruit is an important part of a well-balanced diet.

My first Healthy Memorial Day treat is sure to fix your sweet tooth craving and is also festive at the same time. It is one of the oldest tricks in the book but probably one of my favorite classics. It is an American Flag made out of skewalters of fruit and marshmallows.  For my American Flag I used Strawberries, Marshmallows, Blueberries and Blackberries.

For my second Healthy Memorial Day treat I used big pretzels sticks and dipped them in just about an inch or two of melted white chocolate then sprinkled some festive Memorial Day colored sprinkles over the end of the pretzel that had been dipped in the melted white chocolate. It the perfect mix of sweet and salty. It’s a much healthier alternative then a cupcake or slice of cake. It’s sure to satisfy any sweet tooth craving.

My third and final Healthy Memorial Day treat is a piece of honey wheat bread topped with blueberries, raspberries and thin layer of cool wipe made into the shape of an American Flag. It’s a great festive way to enjoy Memorial Day without over doing the sweet treats.

Those are my top three easy healthy Memorial Day treats, what are some of your favorite healthy alternative foods and/or treats for Memorial Day?
